The FACC holds a variety of events throughout the year. Sponsors may choose to be the exclusive sponsor or to co-sponsor a presentation or other meeting or may choose to act as a sponsor for our major events decribed below.
Annual Beaujolais Nouveau Festival
Held in in November, this event combines the traditional welcoming of the Beaujolais Nouveau along with tastings of other wines and specialties of France. Sponsors have a variety of ways to promote their business through donations to specific aspects of the event and through posters and in invitations.
Our Annual Gala honors companies for their special contributions to economic relations between France and the U.S. In past years we have honored Ford Motor Company, Valeo, Air France, Chrysler and others. The FACC Gala is the major "not to be missed" event of the year for the French-American business community in Michigan. Sponsorship opportunities include table sponsorships, contributions to the auction, the printing of invitations and other ways for effective promotion to a high level group of owners, executives, managers and professionals
Companies wishing to advance the development of French-American business while making a financial contribution to a needy Michigan college or university student may co-sponsor a scholarship for a student to study or to pursue an internship in France. This is a way to have a direct, positive impact while receiving favorable recognition for a worthy cause. Further information on the FACC scholarship program is available on our Scholarship page.
